My name is Angela Charles. However you stumbled upon my website...thank you for coming :-) I've been doing music for a little over 20 years. I was a full-time musician for 7 years. I was active in my local music scene and performing gigs anywhere I could until 2020. Covid lockdowns and other life circumstances are forced me to figure out a new direction in music. Not sure exactly what I'm doing yet but I figure recording and releasing music in any capacity is a good start. God brought me through a lot these past few years and has been tugging on my heart to sing music for him. When I was very young trying to get into the music scene I did a "request a cover" series that challenged and grew me musically. I used to be terrified to perform music and doing that series pulled me out of my own butt and made me interact with people. I feel like I'm starting over again even though I've been doing this for so long. I've decided to do another request a cover series but this time I would like to cover old hymns. My first song will be my own request "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" by Helen Lemmel. This song has been stuck in my head for months and I believe God put it there because it is the answer to everything and life situation. My whole life perspective has changed and I don't even feel like the same person anymore since the beginning of the lockdowns. A positive change is taking place...not a negative one! :-)
As I work on new music you can still enjoy my latest releases.. My album "The Bitter Tree" is a compliation of some of my personal favorite songs that I had written over a span of 15 years. It was a long journey finally completing a full album and I am very proud of it! Purchase your own album online or if you want to be extra cool, the hard album is available as well in my store. I did all of the artwork and it comes with a lyric book along w/ the story of where the title track, "The Bitter Tree" came from. It was a song that God gave me in a dream that helped me through one of the hardest times in my life.
I also released a single in April of 2021 called, "It Ain't Easy Bein' A Pioneer" that is available everywhere online. This song was inspired from a conversation that I had between some of my close friends. Really understanding the life of Jesus will change you and water the seed of courage that he plants in our hearts. He was counter cultural and had no problem being a societal outcast. All he cared about what's carrying out his purpose and following his fathers will. What an example for us to follow! <3
